Get to Know Your Solar Farm!

The Oaks Landfill Community Solar Farm is a groundbreaking project for Montgomery County and Maryland as a whole. This solar farm, constructed, owned, and operated by Ameresco Inc., resides on 16 acres of a capped Landfill in Neighborhood Sun's hometown of Montgomery County. Additionally, this is the largest residential community solar farm in the country to reserve 100% of its power for low- and moderate-income (LMI) residents who receive their electricity via Pepco.  This ensures residents who qualify as LMI to receive 25% savings on their electricity costs every month.
